Being able to compose is an exceptional gift bestowed to very few talented musicians after many years of playing and performing. 

But incredibly, Adrian only started playing the piano after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2006.

Now he is composing his own music to critical acclaim.

He was operated on and successfully treated by TUF President, Professor Roger Kirby, which is how he became aware of the work of TUF.

Adrian said:  “This is something of a personal journey. Having survived prostate cancer I set myself a target to do something I’d never thought possible when I was ill; learning to play the piano. That was 2006 – by 2013 I was composing my own work.

“Prostate cancer transformed my life because it made me musical – a true silver lining without which I would not have discovered the joy of composing and playing.

“I am delighted to be supporting the work of The Urology Foundation and raising money for such a worthwhile cause.”

There will be four very different concertos, including The Warsaw Concerto, written for the 1941 British film Dangerous Moonlight and concluding with Adrian’s Piano Concerto No. 2 which contains distinct echoes of the Rachmaninov style.
